Mandatory Policies and Trainings for All Chicago Employers to Strengthen Protection Against Sexual Harassment


To further prevent violence and sexual harassment within Chicago workplaces, the City of Chicago Commission on Human Relations (“Commission”) has adopted new amendments to the Human Rights Ordinance (“Ordinance”), requiring all Chicago businesses to have a written sexual harassment policy, display an employment poster on sexual harassment within the workplace, and provide employees with annual training on prevention. These new changes are effective on July 1, 2022. Additionally, employers have new recordkeeping requirements, and employees working in the City of Chicago now have additional time—365 days—to report discrimination, including instances of sexual harassment, to the Commission, an increase from the 300 previously provided.
